What is Play Therapy?
"Simply speaking, play therapy is based upon the fact that play is the child’s natural medium of self-expression. It is an opportunity which is given to the child to play out his feelings and problems just as in certain types of adult therapy an individual may talk out his difficulties." - Virginia Axline
You and your child are extremely important to us, and we are here to serve you. Play therapy is a powerful tool for addressing cognitive, behavioral, and emotional challenges.
Research has shown that this type of child behavioral therapy is an effective mental health approach, regardless of age, gender, or the nature of the problem, and works best when a parent, family member, or caretaker is actively involved in the treatment process.
What is a Registered Play Therapist?
Registered play therapists are licensed professionals who are credentialed by the International Association of Play Therapy. They have obtained considerable education, training, and supervised experience in the field of play therapy.
Licensed professionals use play therapeutically to help children process their experiences and develop more effective strategies for managing their worlds.
